A Very Merry X-Mies

After a lovely evening party at John Rosselli Antiques and then a delicious dinner at Park Avenue Winter, Scott McBee and I enjoyed a spectacular stroll down Park Avenue – we made a point to stop and admire Mies’ sublime Seagram building. I adore the pair of reflecting pools that flank the plaza and especially this time of year when they are filled with a veritable forest of Xmas trees all perfectly graduated and lit to great effect.

Seeing this beautiful display always gets me into the holiday spirit – the smell of the the trees is deliciously intoxicating on a chilly December evening, and now I’m anxious to fill my home with pots of paper whites and amaryllis, and perhaps even a gorgeous little Xmas tree. In any case, I hope all of you are finding a few moments during this oft chaotic time of year to enjoy the lovely season!

I’m getting in the spirit with a Tyrolean and tartan theme – pairing my splendid Tyrolean suit in charcoal wool tweed with black leather piping by Gucci with a red cotton tartan shirt with contrast white collar and french cuffs by Turnbull and Asser. I’m also wearing Seaman Schepps black pearl cuff links and a red alligator belt with sterling buckle from Ralph Lauren, forest green cashmere tie by Borrelli, forest green leather gloves by Sermoneta.
